The Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs (DCYJMA) requires a provider of Internal Audit services to assist with the delivery of the 2020-21 Strategic Internal Audit Plan.
The scope of works under this RFQ include the delivery of following five internal audit reviews, and their associated high level objectives (subject to changes as agreed between the Customer and the Supplier). An indicative number of days has been provided but this may vary depending on the audit approach:
Confidential Information (30 days):
The audit will assess the department’s response to the Crime and Corruption Commission’s Operation Impala report. This will include a deep dive into systems containing confidential data to assess the adequacy and effectiveness of the controls to restrict and monitor access.
Financial Continuous Controls Monitoring (30 days):
The audit will identify and assess the adequacy and effectiveness of financial continuous controls monitoring across the department, including monitoring performed by Queensland Shared Services. Where gaps are identified workshops will be held to discuss available data sources and develop action plans.
Health, Safety and Wellbeing of Staff (40 days):
The audit will assess the adequacy and effectiveness of the departments Health, Safety and Wellness processes. The audit will be in two phases with an initial review to ensure appropriate policies and procedures are in place covering all key HSW requirements followed by compliance testing at a sample of locations.
Supervision Framework (20 days):
The audit will assess the adequacy and effectiveness of the department’s supervision framework for Youth Justice staff with a particular emphasis on the support and development of middle management.
Managed Property Arrangements (20 days):
The audit will assess the adequacy and effectiveness of the departments managed property arrangements. This will include Leases, QFleet and Repairs/ Maintenance.
The internal audit reviews are to be conducted in accordance with the International Standards for the professional practice of Internal Auditing, utilising the relevant methodology which complies with Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA).
Department templates will be provided for the Terms of Reference and the draft/final Reports for each of the internal audit reviews with deliverables branded as DCYJMA Internal Audit reports.
The completion of all five Internal Audit reviews is required by 30 June 2021. All reviews are scheduled to commence in Quarter 3 with specific timescales to be agreed with the successful supplier.
Three of the audits are more complex (Confidential Information; Financial Continuous Controls Monitoring; and Health, Safety and Wellbeing of Staff)) and the audit approach may require Subject Matter Expertise to maximise the value provided to the department. These three audits will be evaluated as a group and the remaining two audits (Supervision Framework and Managed Property Arrangements) evaluated as a second group. Each group will be evaluated and awarded separately, this may result in the audits being allocated to two different providers or the same provider.
